New adverntures

The theme for this week's  Stampotique designer's challenge is "New adventures".  Here is my entry for this challenge, a card with one of the first gelliplate backgrounds that I made.  So a new technique adventure. These are the Stampotique stamps I used: Oscar Wilde and Spidergrass

Have fun stamping!

Birdy up Dominos

A quick little make here using the Birdy Up stamp. I have put magnets on the back of each of these and they are now sittin on the front of my freezer. I think I will have to work out a little code with them so I can alter their order around depending on my mood. I might label them with things like Crazy Bird and Stoppy Bird lol.

Thanks for the visit today and don't forget to check out the challenge blog. Carol x

Listen to your Heart

Here's my card for this week's challenge, using "faux metal"! Heart Shirt is one of my favorite little guys - he's so stinkin' cute! And the message is When Heart Speaks, I just cut it apart after stamping. I created my little "metal" heart using embossing powder. The texture actually comes from the Hexagon stamp, pressed into the EP while it was still warm and melty.

We hope you'll play along with us this week!

When you love ...

It’s time for the new Stampotique designer’s challenge. “Faux metal” is this week’s theme. For this card I made a background with alcoholink and a bit of silver mixative. I made the hearts with silver embossingpowder and the wonderful Heart stamp from France Papillon, one of Stampotique’s latest designers.

Make sure you go and visit the Stampotique challenge blog and the blogs of the design team members to see some amazing projects with this Faux metal technique. And please come and join us in this challenge. 

These are the stamps I used for my card (all Stampotique of course!)

June Guest Designer: Arwen McCullen

Stampotique loves having guest designers and we are thankful to Nicole Maki for joining us last month with her phenomenal artwork.  

We are excited to announce our guest designer for June, Arwen McCullen.  If you are friends with Stampotique over on Facebook you see Arwen over there quite frequently displaying her AWESOME creations.  Here's a little more on Arwen:

Hey dear ones

                         First of all I am really happy to be here with you as a guest designer.

I love Stampotique and therefore it is a great honor for me :)

I would like to introduce myself:

I am Arwen and I live with my daughter and three cats in a village inGermany.  I am a single mom and 43 years old.  Creativity has determined my whole life.  My job is costume seamstress and I have mostly worked for the Middle Ages.  2004 I discovered stamping for me, and since then it can not get rid of me.  

At first I just stamped cutie stuff, but for some time my heart belongs tothe gloomy;)  Since I'm from the gothic scene, also tend my works there.  Unfortunately, there is in my area not many like-minded - Cutie is hotter.  When I discovered Stampotique a few years ago, I immediately lost my heartto this great motives.  My hobbies include, apart from the stamps still scrapbooking, reading,movies, music, sewing, writing.  I am currently writing a fantasy novel for young people.  If you like, then be sure to stop by on my blog.  Would be very happy about your visit :)
hugs and kisses

Reach Your Goals

Here is my little bookmark featuring "clear" things for this week's Stampotique Designer's Challenge.  The background is a resist technique created using the clear Goosebumps spray.  Just spray it on, let it dry and then rub the gorgeous inks from the gorgeous Kaleidacolor Tomatoe Vine ink pad over top!  Voila!  The moon, bunny and words are all cut from shimmering papers made by spraying Xpress-It paper with Fireworks Cantalope spray - it's homemade shimmer stock!  The piece is finished off with a few clear Dew Drops adhered with clear glue! :)  Be sure to play along with the challenge for your chance to win Stampotique bucks!
